in an attempt to limit our planned deployment in europe, the russians have never abandonedo their goal of limiting the u.s. nuclear defense. the answer is u.s not reset, but recommitment to the principle that the most moral way to protect the american people from missile attacks is by missile defense. the third national security challenge i would briefly discuss is thedisc threat of political islam. to defeat an enemy, we must first know the enemy, and thatng includes calling them by their name, radical islamists who seek to impose their ideology to rule others, to govern political, social and civic life as well as religious life. intelligence is key to defeating political islam. the foreign intelligence surveil lance act and the patriot actt are good examples of the tools that we need enemies are planning, who theyy are before they strike. these tools cannot be allowed to expire. the patriot act reflects a recognition that investigators chargedinvestigaters preventingr acts of terrorism should have at least the same investigative tools as federal agents charged with targeting mobsters

to immigration. i can tell you that the united states as well as europe and many other countries including eventually china because of our current demographic situation, we will turn to immigration increasingly because our ter tilt is approaching below replacement level so immigration will be a necessity. the chinese are thinking about the fact their one child policy is going to lead to them having a much older population soon with fewer children. so immigration becomes another way they can continue the economic vitality of their country. so to me immigration and vitality are closely linked. i think that's true for many business people in the united states and the university. not too sure about the politicians. >> i think we have to remind people the story of america is a story of immigration. some of the most iconic companies in the country were founded by immigrants. it's been the history for a long time. i believe the reason it's so sensitive now is the debate around immigration is the debate around illegal immigration and there needs to be more focus on legal immigration and less about

companies, and they compete with global multinational companies from europe, japan, asia, brazil. in some cases russia. and these places, you know, many of these places, their costs are way lower than companies face here in the united states. so, if you start telling u.s. companies you have to pay higher wage s just because we're making a rule that says you have to do that, they're going to basically hire fewer u.s. workers and hire more overseas workers because they can do that. again, the way out of this trap is to develop skills that other people don't have. so that you are not one of thousands who can do some interchangeable job. if you are just sitting there with the same skills as many, many other people, you are stuck. i know this is very difficult, it's expensive to get skills, it takes time. we have a lot of people cutting corners, living with family, finding ways to get the education you need. it is absolutely true that peoples living standards are going down. one might only hope that our living standards are high enough that we can maybe cut a few corners, do what we need to an
